The mediator on USA's Fairly Legal, 31, shares her favorite sparring partners.
1 ALEXIS COLBY VS. KRYSTLE CARRINGTON, DYNASTY
Alexis [Joan Collins] was the perfect bitch. You loved to hate her. And then you had Krystle [Linda Evans], who was an angel. And that white hair-she was like Mrs. God. I remember one episode where they threw each other down and started pulling each other's hair. It was so juicy!
2 PAULA ABDUL VS. SIMON COWELL, AMERICAN IDOL
I loved American Idol with those two. It was always fun to watch them. Paula's statements were just flat-out nutty, and Simon always called her on them. They were good TV!
3 JEANNIE VS. HER SISTER JEANNIE, I DREAM OF JEANNIE
Barbara Eden played her own evil sister. I loved the good versus the bad. Things got tense in her relationship with Major Nelson when the evil sister was around. I used to want to be Jeannie, but I wanted to be the good Jeannie.
4 GOMER PYLE VS. SERGEANT CARTER, GOMER PYLE
The sergeant [Frank Sutton] was so tough, jaded and militant-and Gomer [Jim Nabors] was just innocent and naive. He never wanted to do anything wrong. I loved watching them go at it.
